Hey Pesto!

There are just a couple of weeks left at the time of writing this, to send in your ideas for using pesto.

At Make it and Mend it we are big fans of pesto as it is so easy to get a jar out of the store cupboard and with just a couple of spoonfuls make some magical dishes.

The MIAMI team get together every two weeks. We rotate between each other's homes and last week we went to Hilary's place. She rustled us up a fantastic lunch and the piece de resistance was this delicious pastry tart that she reckons only took a few minutes to rustle up and 10 to 15 minutes in the oven.

All you need is some filo pastry (you can buy this frozen if you're not a pastry cook) to line a baking tray, spread some pesto on top, cover with some sliced tomato, peppers and goats' cheese, et voila' just top with a sprig of fresh basil to serve - delicious!

Send us your pesto tips and you could win a book of Sacla' pesto recipe cards (UK only)
This offer has now closed - we will shortly be publishing the recipes you sent us on our website
